    Does any one know how to shoot shirts where they have a form to them(like they were on someone) but you can see the inside of the shirt collar. If I use a mannaquin I can not see back of shirt. I see this all the time but do not know how to do it. Do not want flat shirt. Any suggestions?

    not sure... use the manquin and then take a pic of the inside collar. paste the inside collar to the shirt. There maybe an easer way, but this in my limited knowldge how I would do it.

    well........use a lot of white toilet paper... put it inside and use a thread to avoid it from falling out...

    Probably some kind of hollow manaquin that has just shoulders. You might be able to rig something up, but I'll bet it would take some work.

    Yes, and also you can try to use a soft focus to capture the texture of the cloth.

    I think a soft focus will usually blur out the texture.

    okay a figure 8 wire on top of a pole. 'Shoulder of the shirt hangs from the figure eight and drapes down... collar is visible above the figure 8 frame. might not work but it sounds awfully good on paper.

    They make manniquins (sp?) that are just the shoulders and down to hips. You might be able to borrow one from a clothing store in exchange for prints or something.

    I would think maybe lots of starch applied when it is on a maniquien and then hopefully it will be sturdy enough to stand on its own.

    I say that the one in the photo just looks like a manequine shot. It's the type that's only a torso. With a polo shirt like the one pictured, the collar will stay up on it's own.

    Nah! I don't think so. I think it just makes it look softer!
